Quick Placement Test (QPT)

All applications must be submitted with an English proficiency test result, unless the student has studied at an institution where English is the medium of instruction.

When English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) programs are required for entry into a program, the number of weeks of ELICOS study is determined by RMIT (based on IELTS, TOEFL score) and/or RMIT English Worldwide (based on Quick Placement Test).

See entry requirements for full details.

If the student does not have proof of English proficiency, they must undertake the Quick Placement Test (QPT). The QPT test ensures that the student’s level of English is correctly assessed and that the student is offered the correct duration of English study.

QPT results are valid for up to 12 months prior to student commencing the ELICOS program. If the QPT results are more than 6 months old, REW reserves the right to retest all students when they commence the ELICOS program.

Representatives in Melbourne should send their students to RMIT English Worldwide to take the test. Representatives outside of Melbourne can conduct the test themselves, unless prior arrangements have been made with REW.

Students must take the test in strict examination conditions. The QPT must be done in a secure area and under supervision. You must not email this test to the student. All previous versions of the test and instructions must be disposed of responsibly.

If the test is not conducted according to the instructions, this may cause unnecessary disruption and costs. If the representative is deemed liable for such misdemeanor, commissions will not be payable and the privilege to conduct the test will be revoked.

If the student is not available to undertake the test in a supervised area, please contact REW to make alternative arrangements for the student.

Submit completed tests and associated documents to REW.

Contact us for more information.

Request the QPT. You will need to supply your details, including your representative number.
